Instructions for an angel craft
1. Body of the angel
Cut out a fabric circle 22 - 24 in.(60 cm.) in diameter (or to fit the height of the bottle).
Make a hole in the middle of the fabric circle to fit over the neck of the bottle.
Place the fabric over the bottle.
Press the foam ball firmly onto the top of the bottle.
2. Angel wings
Trace your child's hands on the foam sheet.
Cut out the hands without indenting the fingers all the way.
Spread glue on the hands and shake glitter or confetti onto the glue.
Hole punch through both 'thumbs'.
Loop a long piece of narrow ribbon through the holes in the thumbs as shown.
Draw the thumbs together so that one hole overlaps the other.
Wrap the ribbon around the neck of the bottle and secure with a bow. The handprints should be visible from the back of the angel.
Glue hair and craft eyes to the head.
Paint or draw a tiny mouth.
Make a halo with the chenille stem and place on top of the hair.
3. Display your Christmas angel for everyone to enjoy!
The special hand-print wings make this a memorable Christmas craft!
